Is it possible to change the ordering of comments in discussions so that the latest is at the bottom and not the top. It's counter intuitive to me to start at the bottom of the page and read upwards.

I could see an option to change the order of discussions but not the order of the comments

Quoted from discussion:
Forum ordering can't be changed for now. It was intentional, to
1) get people to actually read the first topic, and reply accordingly, instead of going out-of-topic.
2). the first page should be the freshest content. Does feel a bit awkward if we think in term of normal forum, but if you look at it like a normal content entry, latest content first, at the top on the first page isn't really all that uncommon.
3) well, since new post is ajax-ed kinda tricky to send it to the last page..

Sorry but in my humble opinion that sucks for a discussion post. The comment about normal content entry doesn't apply as in a discussion each post follows from the previous one and is not necessarily a single entity. If this is a limitation of JomSocial then its a pretty big limitation imho

I think it might be possible to change the ordering of the comments on people.joomla.org - and it is a solution given by the support people in the forum of JomSocial. Not sure if this link will show for everyone, but it will certainly show for those that can log in on the JomSocial site:

Could this change be implemented on people.joomla.org, please? It would make the comment system logical :-)
